|Avatar: The Resistance Chapter 17: Breaking Ties|
August 5, 2012
A few days have passed since they found out the Earth King's secret. They want to change the Earth King's mind, but they needed to wait for their appointment to be approved, since they don't want to cause any more trouble. They decided to not to tell anyone about the deal because they believed no one would believe them and they also didn't have proof. Ash and Aria noticed that Mia and Nazo have been acting odd lately. They would always sneak away from them when they have a chance. Still the two knew what they were doing and didn't want to bother them about it. Outside the city of Ba Sing Se, a fleet of Chimera ships was hiding behind a group of mountains. Inside one of the ships, a Pure Chimera general was talking to Diablo.
"Our ships are in position my lord," the Pure Chimera said.
"That's good to hear Azmodan. Now you stay there and wait for my orders," Diablo said.
"Why are we here? Did he break the deal?"
"He hasn't yet. Still I believe he's going to break it soon. When he does we will take Ba Sing Se."
"I've been waiting a long time for this. I wanted to take this city since the invasion. This fleet conquered the Fire Nation Capital and Helghan, it will conquer Ba Sing Se."
"Don't let your success over shadow the attack. Just be ready."
"Don't worry I won't." There conversation ends and Diablo gets ready to visit the Earth King. He knew the Earth King was up to something and he wants to make sure the Earth King stays in his place. Around noon, James sees the group and walks up to them.
"Hey guys I have good news," James said.
"What's the good news," Aria asks.
"Our appointment with the Earth King has been approved. Were going to meet him in one hour."
"In one hour! Were still in the lower ring. How are we supposed to get there in time without Blaze?"
"I bought a dragon whistle. I can use it to call her," Ash said.
"Are you sure it works?"
"No I don't, but we can try." Ash blows the whistle, but nothing happens. He blows it again and still nothing happens. Aria was about to kill him when Blaze arrives. They get onto Blaze and fly to the Earth King's Palace. They walk into the building and meet the Earth King in his throne room. The Earth King wasn't really happy to see them.
"It's good to see you again Earth King. Have you thought about our plan?" Nazo asked.
"Yes I have. I still think it's still too risky and not worth my time," the Earth King said.
"What a king you turned out to be," James said.
"What did you say?"
"Your just a coward. You're too afraid to face the Chimera. Are you even sure the Chimera will keep their side of the deal?"
"Of course they would. Why would they break this deal?"
"I guess you didn't see the Chimera ships hiding behind the mountains."
"What are you talking about?" James shows the Earth King photos he taken of Chimera ships hiding behind the mountains near Ba Sing Se. The King couldn't believe what he was seeing. He didn't want to believe the Chimera would break the deal.
"The Chimera want to wipe us out. The deal was made so you would lower your guard. When your guard is low they will attack. Are you just going to let them take our city?" James asked.
"You have opened my eyes. Still this plan is too risky. How are we going to defend Ba Sing Se and attack the tower Diablo is in at the same time?"
"We bring in the Republic City military. They will attack the tower, while the soldiers here stay and defend the city," Ash said.
"Are you sure the Republic City military will join us?" the Earth King asked.
"You could give them a call. This is our final chance to defeat the Chimera. If this fails them we will be wiped out."
"I'll give them a call. If they join us then we will start this plan."
"That's good to hear," Nazo said. The Earth King left the room to call the Republic City military. The group waited in the room in till he comes back. They were hoping Republic City would help with their plan. After a few hours the Earth King returned.
"What was there answer?" Mia asked.
"There going to help us, but it is going to take some time for them to get here," the Earth King said.
"We can wait a few days. Don't break the deal with Diablo in till we they arrive," Nazo said.
"Don't worry about Diablo. I got something that might help us with our plan. You better go now. He said he would come back today." The group leaves and few hours later Diablo arrives and meets with the Earth King.
"I just came to make sure you kept your part of the deal," Diablo said.
"Don't worry I have. I also want to make sure you kept your side of the deal," the Earth King said.
"I never break a deal. I always wait for the other side to break the deal."
"Then why are your ships near my city?"
"What are you talking about? There are no ships near this city."
"Are you sure? I have pictures of them hiding behind the mountains."
"I feel like you don't trust me."
"You are a Chimera. You're trying to wipe us out."
"We only want the planet. We don't care about your race."
"I can tell that you really don't. You just kill us in cold blood."
"Your people do the same to us. So you should shut your mouth and stay in your place. Have a good day." Diablo leaves and the Earth King steps outside. He looks at the night sky and wonders if he's doing the right thing.
After a few hours, James goes home and the others go back to their hotel. Aria and Ash fall asleep and few hours later notice that Mia and Nazo are missing. They see an invitation on a table and left the hotel. They went to a church and saw the two. Mia was in a beautiful white dress and Nazo was wearing a nice suit. They watch as the two got married. Ash and Aria decided to let the two have their night and went back to the hotel.
Two week later the Republic City military arrives. The Earth King explains to them the plan and reveals he placed a tracking device on Diablo on their last meeting. The troops get ready to begin the mission. Nazo and Ash decide to join the mission, while Mia and Aria stay to protect the city.
"We better get going Nazo. There going to leave soon," Ash said.
"Are you sure you don't want to come with us Aria?" Nazo asks.
"The city needs me. Also I have to keep an eye on your wife," Aria said.
"I think Mia can take care of herself, but I guess she could use some protection."
"She's going to need a lot of protection. I guess she didn't tell you."
"Didn't tell me what?"
"I think you should tell him."
"We have no time for this. We have to get going," Ash said. Ash grabbed Nazo and started to drag him to the ships.
"Nazo I'm pregnant," Mia yelled at Nazo. Nazo was shocked to hear this, but happy at the same time. This gave him more motivation to get the job done.
"Sounds like your going to be a father."
"That's what it sounds like. Lets do this," Nazo said. They get on their ship and head towards Diablo's location. He wasn't that far, but they knew it wasn't going to be easy. Diablo sensed they were coming and gave Azmodan the order to attack. The fleet went out of hiding and started to head towards the city. Aria and Mia looked at the fleet and ready themselves for a fight.
